1 of 5

“..what's missing - from the entire movie - is that magical spark that can turn a film into a franchise..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
2.5 of 4

“..this one has its upsides: snappy banter, Bukowski readings, and Irons happily channeling the spirit of the late, great Agnes Moorehead from "Bewitched." He's Endora-ble..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
2.5 of 4

“..the evocative locations, complete with a creepy old manor house, sleepy bayous and trees covered in Spanish moss, are ideal for this spooky-funny story..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2.5 of 4

“..the dark Caster/light Caster choice/struggle didn't exactly bore me but it's so familiar that it seems to be running on autopilot..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
Review rate : C+

“..Richard LaGravenese has adapted expertly other books into effective romantic melodramas, and you cannot blame the writing or dialogue, which are fluent and occasionally engaging..”
by Emanuel Levy [EmanuelLevy.Com]
“..look and feel like so many other films of its type: a concoction that makes highly calculated use of fantasy, fates, taboos, young love..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..its primness aside, the movie is terrific fun and much more affecting than Twilight or Supernatural..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
Review rate : B-

“..it's Twilight with the sexes reversed..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..isn't pure camp-there's some real emotion in there. But not enough to hit you on a primal level..”
by David Edelstein [NY Magazine]
3 of 4

“..a script so witty..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]
“..a feverishly enjoyable guilty pleasure..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

LATEST REVIEWS

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :

“..colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]

THE FLUFFY MOVIE :

“..the personal material shines brightest in this consistently amusing if not hilarious stand-up comedy film..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KICK :

“..is non-stop entertainment and Salman Khan at his best..”
by Sarita Tanwar [dna India]

HERCULES :

“..a picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

A MOST WANTED MAN :

“..it's not a kind way for a memorable artist to say goodbye, but there's one thing you have to admit about Mr. Hoffman-he may have been many things, but boring was not one of them..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

MY MAN IS A LOSER :

“..that type of movie hottie who hangs with the guys, becomes a love interest for the secretly lonely bachelor..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
